Visible signs of a grow op

Listed below are just a few of the most common indicators of a marijuana grow house.

  • Mold growth in corners where walls and ceilings meet
  • Condensation on walls or windows
  • Bubbling paint or wallpaper
  • Discoloration of the walls, ceiling or roof
  • Gaping holes in walls
  • Electrical work that has been tampered with
  • Bypassed hydrometer
  • High relative humidity
  • Covered up windows and doors

However, the signs are not always as obvious, so it’s important to supplement each grow op inspection with an air quality test.


Why should you get your house inspected?

For unsuspecting homeowners, major signs of a grow op may be difficult to recognize simply because they may seem like common defects with a property. However, these defects often lead to permanent structural problems that compromise the safety of a home.

For example, the high humidity levels required to grow marijuana lead to black mold, which, as we all know, presents a serious risk to human health. Also, over time, the black mold will eat away at the structural elements of the home (e.g. beams and joists).

Professional inspections are, therefore, crucial in identifying the extent of damage in a former grow op. The results of the inspection will help the mold expert devise an effective mold remediation strategy that will ensure complete removal of black mold from your home so that you can breathe easy.
